Fix the EU Browser Ballot Page by Removing Non-Windows OS Apple Safari Market Share!

The EU browser ballot screen's purpose is to level the playing field for browsers in the Windows operating system pc market. But the EC is counting Apple Safari users on Apple operating systems to determine position and placement on the Windows browser ballot screen.

 This is hurting smaller, Windows-focused browser companies in the EU market.

 Of the three tracking tools used by the EC uses to assess market share only one  - NetMarketShare - differentiates between Apple Safari usage on Windows or Apple OS. NetMarketShare consistently puts Maxthon ahead of Apple on Windows, and has for a while. 

 The EC has ended up creating unfair advantage in a tool deliberately designed to reduce unfair advantage. This needs to change!  

Remove Apple OS users from the browser ballot calculations!
